2016 fordexplorer Limited Equipped With Hankook Ventus S1 Noble 2 Tires Size 255/50 R20. The Dot Code On The Tires Is 5mnc 1ah 0716. The Vehicle Odometer Shows 4,186 Miles. On February 19, 2017 While Driving On A Residential Street At Less Than 25mph The Front Passenger Side Tire Suffered A “catastrophic” Sidewall Failure Resulting In The Tire Going Completely Flat In Less That 1 Minute. The Failure Occurred On The Inside Sidewall Of The Tire. (this Seems To Be The Same Symptom For Which Hankook Issued An Earlier – Jan 2016 – Recall.) All Four Tires Were Properly Inflated As Indicated By The Tire Pressure Monitoring System. To The Best Of Our Knowledge The Tire Had Never Struck An Object That Could Have Weakened The Sidewall.

2016fordtransit 350hd 144″wheelbase With The Extended Length, High Roof, Dual Rear Wheels. Took Possession Of Van On 05-25-17 With 350 Miles. Had A Vibration In The Steering Wheel Which Started Around 40 Mph And Got More Intense The Faster You Drove. Took It To Have The Front Wheel Balance Checked And Each Wheel Has +2 Oz (06-08-17 1025 Miles) The Wheel Balance Fixed The Steering Wheel Vibration Problem. Then I Noticed Unsafe Handling Characteristics, Unsafe Swaying And Possible Loss Of Control When Affected By The Smallest Amount Of Wind, Passing Larger Vehicles And Road Conditions. Not Safe To Drive Over 55 Mph On The Highway Due To Excessive Swaying That Could Lead To Loss Of Control. Had ford Dealer Confirm That There Is No Mechanical Problem. It Is Not A Intermittent Problem But Rather A Problem That Occurs Every Time It Is Driven In The Above Conditions. It Is A Problem That Became Evident Right After Taking Possession Of The Vehicle And Fixing The Wheel Balance Issue.

The Vehicle Has Approximately 1000 Miles On The Odometer. In An Effort To Rectify Squealing Brakes, I Checked Each Lug Nut To Ensure They Were Tightened To Factory Specification. All Twenty (4 Wheels With 5 Lug Nuts Each) Were Only Tightened To Approximately 90ft-lbs Of Torque. ford Specifies In The Owners Manual That Lug Nuts Be Torqued To 150ft-lbs. I Used Two Different Styles Of Torque Wrench To Conduct My Test. One Type Was Used To Loosen Ten Lug Nuts And Another Was Used To Loosen The Remaining Ten. My Intent Was To Rule Out Any Gross Error In Torque Readings. To My Knowledge The Wheels Have Never Been Removed From The Vehicle, Therefore I See Three Possibilities: The Dealer Removed The Wheels For Some Reason And Did Not Torque To Specification Or The Lug Nuts Are Loosening Themselves Evenly Or They Were Not Torqued To Specification From The Factory. I Feel The Most Likely Scenario Is That They Were Not Torqued To Specification From The Factory.

ford Does Not Allow The Tpms Alert Threshold To Be Reduced To Reflect Aftermarket Tire Pressure Needs. I Have Owned Three Superduties To Date, A 2011, At 2013 And Now A 2016. On Each Vehicle I Have Been Running Toyo Opencountry A/t Tires On Them, And The Proper Tire Inflation Value On These Is Way Below What The Oem Michelin Tires Come From The Factory. The Oem Tires Are Suppose To Be Inflated To 65 Psi In The Front And 80 Psi In The Rear. The Tpms Alert Will Kick On At A Small Percentage Below These Values. The Toyo Tires On The Other Hand Are Suppose To Be Run At 34 Psi, Given The Gross Weight Of The Vehicle, In Order To Achieve Proper Wear, Best Gas Mileage And Proper Safety Performance. I Have Been Trying For Five Years Now To Find A Dealer That Can Adjust The Tpms Alert Threshold So My Wife Does Not Have The Tpms Alert Incorrectly On All The Time. I Have Had To Make A Compromise Between Inflating The Tires Past Their Optimal Level So The Light Goes Off So She Can Take Advantage Of Tpms Alerting Her To A Flat Tire, Or To Inflate The Tires To The Proper Lower Level To Achieve Proper Wear. When I Have Inflated The Tires To The Level Required To Turn Off Tpms, The Tires Have Literally Been Destroyed In 1/10th The Time As They Should Have. In One Case I Mounted New Snow Tires On The Vehicle And She Took A Cross Country Trip, Putting About 4000 Miles On The Vehicle. The Tires Were Inflated To The Level ford Says So The Tpms Would Turn Off When She Arrived Back, The Rear Tires Were Destroyed. I Now Run The Tires At Toyo’s Recommended Value And Told My Wife To Ignore The Tpms Warning. ford Needs To Follow The Other Manufacturers In Allowing The Customer To Change The Tpms Alert Threshold. Every ford Dealer Thinks All Tires Should Be Inflated To 65 Psi, Which Is Only Applicable For Oem Tires. This Is A Major Safety Issue.

I Purchased This 2016ford F150 To Tow My Trailer. It Is Equipped With The ford Max Tow Package. This Truck Will Not Safely Tow My Trailer. The Problem Is With The Hankook Tires. The Tires Cause The Truck To “hunt” And Swerve While Driving On Straight Road. The Tires Are Seeking The Grooves In The Road And Make The Truck Difficult To Drive. When The Trailer Is Connected To The Truck, The Problem Becomes So Severe That The Truck Cannot Be Safely Operated. When Driving The Truck In No Wind, The Truck Swerves As If The Wind Is Gusting From The Side. I Have Driven This Truck With The Service Director And The Shop Foreman And They Both Agree That The Truck Has An Issue With The Tires., ford Refuses To Assist In This Matter.

2016fordexplorer With Hankook Ventus S1 Noble 2 Tires. Approximately 3 Months Ago My Wife Was Driving On A Local Surface Street At 45 Mph. Her Tire Pressure Monitor Illuminated On The Dash While Simultaneously The Vehicle Veered Sharply To The Right. Upon Inspection There Was A 2-3 Inch Laceration In The Sidewall Of The Front Passenger Side Tire. There Were Not Any Potholes In The Street Where This Incident Occurred. Tire Seemed To Have Simply “blown Out”. Tire Was Replaced. Yesterday My Wife Was Making A Left Turn From From One Surface Street To Another Traveling Approximately 15-20 Mph And The Replacement Tire Blew Out Again. Similar Details; Tire Pressure Monitor Illuminated While Vehicle Suddenly Veered To The Right. Again, No Potholes Were Present And Zero Indication Of Foreign Objects Causing Flat. There Was Approximately A 2-3 Inch Laceration To Sidewall Of Front Passenger Tire. These Two Incidents Occurred In A Relatively Short Time Span. I Have Read Complaints About Weak Sidewalls Regarding These Tires As Early As 2013. Additionally, Hankook And Hyundai Have Issued A Recall For These Tires (albeit A Different Size) Due To Sidewall Problems. Without Potholes And/or Foreign Objects Causing The Flat Tires, It Seems Obvious That These Tires Are Defective. My Wife Does Not Feel Safe In Her Vehicle, And Is Afraid That Another Blowout May Occur While Traveling At Higher Speeds (freeway).

While Moving At High Speed In Rush-hour Traffic In The Fast Lane On Hwy 680 S In Dublin, Ca The Engine Just Shut Down. This Is Dangerous. The Car Was Towed To ford For Repair – They State It Was A “throttle Body Assembly” Problem – Apparently A Well-know Problem. This Happened With Less Than 6,000 Miles. Also, All 4 Original Equipment Tires Blew-out With Less Than 6,000 Miles – Only One Had A Road-hazard – All Had Sidewall Failures. ford Repaired The Throttle-body Assembly But Not The Tires. To Keep Us Happy, They Offered Us An “extended Warranty” – This Was Never Provided – Indeed, Despite Repeated E-mails To 2 ford Representatives Over A 3-month Time-period, I No Longer Receive Any Response From Them Whatsoever. Therefore, It Would Seem That Not Only Are They Providing A Dangerous Product, They Are Also Deceptive In Their Handling Of Customers.

I Purchased A fordexplorer Xlt Back In September Of 2015. Now, After Only 16 Months Of Driving And 23,000 Miles Driven My Dealer Is Telling Me That I Need New Tires On The Car. We Have Hankook Ventus S1 Noble2 Tires (h452) And The Tires Carry A Tread Warranty Of 50,000 Miles However The Dealer Says They Don’t Guarantee The Tire And I Called Hankook And They Said They Only Guarantee Tires That You Purchase Secondarily And Not On Oem Tires Included In The Purchase Of The Car. Tire Size Is 255/50r20. I Would Think That Either The Dealer Or The Manufacture Would Stand Behind Their Product Instead Of Pawning It Off On One Another While I Apparently Have To Fork Out $1,000.00 For A Bad Product. Not Sure What Else To Say Except I Would Advise Anybody Looking For Tires To Never Buy Hankook Tires. *tr

They Asked Us If The Car Had Ever Gotten Stuck Or If We Ever Drive On Gravel Roads. The Car Has Never Been Stuck But We Do Have A Gravel Driveway. They Offered To Sell Us A New Set Of Tires And Send The Old Tires Back To Hankook For Analysis. Called ford Corporate And Opened A Case Cas11650061. Same Response – Buy A New Set Of Tires And We’ll Send Them Back To Hankook For Analysis. I Finally Reviewed The Specifications For These Tires: “the Hankook Ventus S1 Noble 2 Tire Is An Ultra High Performance All-season Tire That Is Developed Specifically For High End Sports Cars And Maximum Handling.” Now I Know Why I’ve Been Finding Pieces Of Rubber On My Concrete Turn-around Pad. Parts Of The Tread Are Peeling Off. Shame On Me For Not Doing The Research First, And Seeing That These Tires Are Not Suitable For Service On A 4wd explorer. Shame On ford For Specifying This Tire For This Vehicle. I’ll Be Buying A New Set Of Tires At My Local Tire Shop. These Tires Will Not Be Hankook Ventus S1 Noble 2 H452 255/50r20 105h Bsw Tires.

When Driving On A Highway At Approximately 70mph, I Completely Lost Control Of My Vehicle For No Known Reason. I Veered Across 3 Lanes Of Traffic And Back Across 2 More. Cars Were Swerving Around Me And Miraculously I Was Not In An Accident. I Pulled Over To The Side Of The Road And Other Cars Traveling Behind Me At The Time Did Too. We Couldn’t See Any Reason Why The Car Wasn’t Working Properly So After Catching My Breath, I Tried To Get Back On The Road. I Could Feel My Car Intermittently “slipping”. It Felt As Though It Was Losing Traction And I Was Losing Control And Not Able To Steer. I Ultimately Pulled Over And Called A Towtruck As I Knew My Vehicle Was Unsafe To Drive. The Tow Truck Driver Saw That My Rear Tires Were Completely Bald Only On The Inside. My Car Had 27,000miles On It At The Time. I Replaced The Back 2 Tires That Day. And The Front 2 The Following Day. 2 Weeks Later, My Car Was Not Driving Properly And I Brought It Into A Local ford Dealership For Service. They Performed A Diagnostic. They Told Me My Rear Suspension Was A Mess, The Uppercontrol Arm Needed To Be Replaced, The Bushings On My Back Right Wheel Were Lose And Had A Lot Of Play And That None Of This Was Covered Under My B2b Warranty Because The Right Rear Tow Link Was Bent And The Weddings Were Lose. Also, The Tires I Put On 2 Weeks Ago Were Stripped Bald On The Insides Again And Needed Tombs Replaced. My Car Has Never Been In An Accident. ford Recalled 75,000 Explores Made In 2014-15 Due To Faulty Rear Suspension From Improper Welding Of Tow Links. I Believe My Car Is A Demonstration That This Is Still An Ongoing Manufacturer Issue With These Vehicles And I Want To Properly Report It So That Other Young Mothers Do Not Have The Same Dangerous Encounter That I Had.

Hankook Ventus S1 Noble 2 255/50r20 105h Tires. At 20,000 Noticed Rubber Pieces Of Tread Peeling Away And Chipping From All Four Clearly Defective Tires. This Defect Appears Similar To Tread Being Sliced By Razor Blades All Over The Tires. Dealer Acknowledges Defective Tires, But Refuses To Honor fords Warranty To Prorate Replacement At Less 60 Percent, And Is Only Willing To Replace With Same Brand Of Tire At 20 Percent Discount Off $242.00 Which Is Clearly Overcharging As I Can Find These Tires For $97 Retail.. These Tires Are Dangerous And Should Be Recalled In Like Manner As Hankooks Other 47000 Tires Which Were Recalled. I Have Seen Other Reports On The Same Tires On fordexplorers. Something Must Be Done Before People Are Injured By The Malfunction Of These Tires, Or Worse. ford Should Be Forced To Recall These Tires.

Noticed 2 Weeks Ago That The Hankook Ventus S1 Noble2 Tires On Our explorer Were Peeling And Chunks Were Coming Out. We Brought The Car To The Dealer Since They Had Just Performed A Tire Rotation A Couple Weeks Prior And Said The Tires Were In Good Shape. They Said “oh, You Have The Hankook? Those Are Known For That”. They Could Not Replace Them. Contacted Hankook And ford. We Were Told They Would Put New Hankook Tires On, But After Looking At The Complaints Online And The Fact That Hankook Lists The Tires As “the Hankook Ventus S1 Noble 2 Tire Is An Ultra High Performance All-season Tire That Is Developed Specifically For High End Sports Cars And Maximum Handling.” This Would Mean They Are Not Designed For A 4 Wheel Drive Suv. We Are Still Dealign With ford To Try And Get A Different Tire Put On Our Vehicle. How Such An Unsafe Tire Can Be Something That A Car Dealer And Manufacturer Can Knowingly Put On A Car When “it Is A Known Issue On This Vehicle With This Tire” Is Beyond My Understanding. Tread Wear Was At 11,100 When This Issue Occurred.

Tire Tread Is Minimal And Rubber Appears To Be “flaking” Off. Dealer Says Tires Look Like They Have Been Driven A Lot On Gravel Roads, Which They Haven’t.

I Have 16,000 Miles And 14 Months On The Original Hankook Tires Supplied On My New Vehicle. These Tires Are Marketed As 50,000 Mile Tires. All 4 Tires Are Showing Significant Degradation, Tread Separation, And Breakdown. The Two Tires Which Were On The Front (due For A Rotation) Are Significantly Worse. I Am Currently At 65% Tread Depth Wear (and Should Be Closer To 40%) Due To The Crumbling Tread. Dealer Stated This Was A Faulty Tire.

This Is Now The Third Sidewall Failure On This Vehicle; All Three Times, It Was The Right Front Tire. Hancook Ventus S1 Noble 255/50r20 Tires. First Off, These Tires Are Rated For 50,000 Miles. At Approximately 28,000 Miles, Dealership Stated That These Tires Would Need To Be Replaced Soon. Have Read Numerous Complaints About Lousy Tread Life And Sidewall Failures On This Tire/vehicle. The Dealership Always Tries To Claim That We Must Have Hit A Pothole. This Is Not The Case! These Tires Are Crap! Fortunately, All Three Incidents Have Occurred At (relatively) Low Speed On Surface Streets. Thankfully, They Didn’t Occur At Highway Speeds. My Wife Does Not Feel Safe In This Vehicle And We Still Have Approximately 10 Months Left On The Lease.

Mileage was 29350 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FM5K8F80GG. Ford Explorer 2016 problem was reported in LIVONIA, MI. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. VEHICLE SPEED: 15 mph.

My explorer Has 29k Miles On It And The Hankook Tires Are Peeling! I Notified The Service Department Spoke To Julio. Was Told It Is A Common Complaint W These Tires And It’s Because They Are Cheaply Made! I Told Him I’m Not Okay W Driving Around My Baby And Son Knowing The Tires Are Peeling. We Have Not Even Had This Vehicle For Two Years! He Assured Me They Are Safe And I Told Him I Want It In Writing . Well The Manager Was Telling Him To Tell Me They Can’t Do That Because If I Hit Something And They Burst They Do Not Want To Be Liable! I Overheard And Went Over And She Took Me Outside And I Started Recording Her And She Said They Are Not Safe They Are Worn Down!! I Then Told Her They Shouldn’t Be! She Said They All Performance Tires And Do Not Last As Long! I Told Her I Had A Hour Drive Back W My 9 Month Old She Was Not Concerned ! I Have Sense Been Looking Online And Noticed The Recent Recall On Hankook Tires. Mine Are Ventus S1 Noble 2 And I Called Hankook And Was Told To Contact Txdot To Complain So Hopefully They Will Be Recalled As Welll. Please Do Something Before Someone Is Seriously Hurt Or Worse!!!
